Excerpt from A Century After: Picturesque Glimpses of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania; Including Fairmount, the Wissahickon, and Other Romantic Localities, With the Cities and Landscapes of the State
That among the edifices of Philadelphia is the cradle of our national libertie... s, is perhaps honor enough for any metropolis; but it is to be remarked that, in addition to Independence Hall and other historical specimens of pre-revolutionary architecture, Philadelphia contains the noblest specimens of pure Greek style in the country: and a wealth of private homes, its greatest pride, the models of middle-class comfort to all the world.
